The Through-life Engineering Services Centre was originally established with joint funding from EPSRC and Industry Partnership. The centre is built on the PSS research and complement the research done in the IVHM Centre based at Cranfield. In comparison to existing PSS research, this Centre will only focus on capturing, analysing and modelling engineering service (e.g. maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO)) feedback through technology development and how that informs the design and manufacturing of high value products to reduce the support cost.
The IVHM Centre focuses on developing sustainable integrated vehicle health management solutions for industry; these solutions are required as an enabling technology for proactive engineering service.
The centre currently works on various collaborative projects and the Academic Partners are:
- The University of Nottingham
